Lisa Hirsch's Classical Music Blog.
The iron tongue of midnight hath told twelve. Lovers, to bed; 'tis almost fairy time.
Opinions expressed on this blog are mine and not my employer's.
I get 'em. I love 'em. I don't read every word, and they can be long. But I like having the info if I decide it is something I want to cover or know more about later on which does happen.
I get them from a few groups, but it can be difficult to tell at first glance what is a press release and what is e-mail to potential ticket buyers (I'm on a lot of performance mailing lists). I generally skim them but will read in detail if I'm interested, until I get to the obvious boilerplate ("Performance Group X is the leading purveyor of . . . "). I like getting them -- they remind me of performances I might otherwise overlook.
Don't really read them. Often, there's too much information for something that probably won't interest me. I prefer a quick Tweet. If it sounds interesting in only a few characters, I'll click the link. If not, I'll move on.
Thank you both!
